Section 1: Identify hazards and assess risk
Hazardous situations and objects are all around us – at home, in public places and at work. Every worker has a role to play in making the workplace as healthy and safe as possible. As you go about your daily work, it is important that you recognise potential hazards and assess risks so that appropriate action can be taken.
This section discusses skills and knowledge you will need to contribute to a safe and healthy work environment, including:
- identifying workplace hazards
- assessing the level of risk.
